Handsome evergreen trees, native of New Zealand, with laurel-like leaves and pyramidal habit, bearing white flowers and plum-like fruit. No evergreen tree or shrub gives a better effect in large shrubberies than the Corynecarpus and it should be found in even the most choice collection.

Propagate, at any time from June to September, by cuttings taken from half-ripe wood; place them in a cold frame shaded from sun, and, when rooted, pot them in three-inch pots; plant them in the open ground the following Spring.
